Eclipse from balcony at Palm Cove

Hi guys,

I have attached some images of the eclipse taken from our apartment balcony through the clouds and fronds of the coconut palms fringing the beach in front of us.

The uncertainty of cloud cover and fears that totality would be obscurred by palm trees (as were the partial phases), made it a very anxious time and not to be repeated. Next time I shall demand clear horizons if nothing else! The trees did make for some artisitic shots as I hink you will agree.
Chunky,

ps I am going to change my name to "Lucky Wheeler" following two miraculous totality apparitions-this one and the one in China in 2009.

Images 4 and 6 are amazing! I have never seen anything like it, it's a great combination of focal length and distance from the trees that results in a very cool effect.

Thanks for your nice comments guys. Very gratifying. My first post of photos on IIS, so didn't know what to expect.
